Thanks again

Yessir it is. I made myself a Skin ID overlay to find all the bits. Thanks!

Tailhook and Launch-bar circled in red, just in case anyone is ever looking down the line.

F18C_2_DIF_RoughMet

Also take a look at the AO layer for the center pylon on F18C_1_DIFF.

But I will guess with the ability to remove pylons ED will take a look at that themselves and change it.

Yes I saw that and I am probably just a simpleton. I used that LUA and all I get is the default skin. My mods are not in place. Which means I am a little closer to my goal. I guess I still need some education.

You can make a separate background layer and fill it with the color you need, get back to the original RoughMet layer and use the color erase tool, take a color sample from the RoughMet and basically remove it's original paint.

DDS files requires a Photoshop plugin or a dedicated program like DXTBMP.


Anyway, if you manage to edit what you're gonna find is this, so you won't be able to erase anything. That texture is probably a leftover from pylon.
